Awarded most popular Lagoon model ever built , the Lagoon 380 S2 offers very good sea-going capabilities as well as generous accommodations, a large and functional cockpit and a sturdy, compact build that will withstand the test of time, is easy to maintain, and will fit in most cradle or travel lifts where much larger catamarans may need to travel far and wide to find somewhere to get their boat out of the water when needed.
'FLIP FLOPS' is a wonderful opportunity to step aboard a lovingly and ideally equipped affordable world cruising catamaran. Her live-aboard family of 5 years chose this very yacht after extensive searching and equipped it from head to toe with everything needed to live comfortably aboard and provide a suitable home for their two teenage children. Her owner, a marine electric and electronic engineer who had his own business until deciding on a sabbatical with his family used all of his knowledge and expertise to transform and equip this little yacht, including a power bank and suit of electronics you would normally find on a Superyacht. For a family wishing for ultimate comfort, yet prefer the sturdy, safe and manageable assets offered by this highly-sought after Lagoon 380 S2 will make an enviable choice.
Read on for the full description! We have included in the inventory the extraordinary list of upgrades from 2017 to 2021. Flip Flops is sold turn key and in beautiful condition, with the only items on the 'to-do' list interior varnishing in some areas in the salon and salon floor. The oven also shows its age but the sellers are willing to replace is at their cost for the new owners or to discount the price accordingly if the buyer prefers to chose his own model.
A near new OC Tender from the renowned NZ manufacturer is available as a separate sale for an interested buyer, as well as a Parasailor in very good condition. The sellers decided to list these two items separately in order to keep the price down for a buyer preferring an alternate choice of tender who who would not make use of a Parasailor.
This Lagoon 380 S2 is priced for a quick sale and available now.

A WORD FROM THE OWNERS:
"Before buying Flip-Flops we spent two years researching options as to what would be the most suitable cruising boat for our family. The first conclusion that we came to is that any future boat had to be a Catamaran. My husband has a balance issue so we needed the most stable boat we could find that was in our price range. This ruled out monohulls for us.
After tons of research, we knew that the Lagoon 380 was the perfect boat for us. The 380 is incredibly roomy for a 38-foot boat, being an older design quality mattered and the 380 is a well-built solid boat with thick solid fiberglass below the waterline. Furthermore, for a smaller catamaran, the 380 has tons of storage space.
Initially, we were hell-bent on buying a 3 cabin owners version, however, after climbing onboard our first owner's version (after having looked at a 4 cabin the day before) it became immediately apparent to us that the nice big luxurious we cabin in the one hull came at a massive price 25% of the boat storage space lost! More than that, when we are on a passage, or going to remote spots, we load up the forward bunk with spares and provisions. With an owner's version, this just isn’t possible. For this reason, one rarely hears of families cruising on 3 cabin versions of the 380.
Once we had come up with a shortlist of boats, we drew up a plan to visit all of the boats on our shortlist. It just so happened that of the boats we were looking at, 5 were in Martinique, and one was in St. Lucia. We set up meetings with brokers and jumped on a plane.
One thing we wanted was a basic boat. No added extras. My husband was in the marine Electrical trade and he had the contacts and the expertise to outfit the boat perfectly for our planned long-distance cruising. He wanted to make sure all the systems that were added to the boat worked in concert with each other, and that there was no hodge-podge of mixed systems and vintages of various systems.
Once we stepped on board Flip-Flops, it was apparent to us that this was our boat! She was one of 2 charter boats on the list, the other boats were owner's boats, and unfortunately, most were in poor condition when compared to this professionally maintained charter boat. It was clear that the owners of these other boats were absentee, and these boats were not getting the love they deserved.
Flip-Flops was different compared to other boats. She had been owned by the same owners for 10 years. The owners used her for 3 months of every year, for the rest of the year, for the most part, she was in a long-term charter program with a small boutique company that rented out the boat for six months or longer periods to people who were on sabbaticals. As a result, Flip-Flops was loved far more than almost any other charter boat we have ever seen.
Our plan from the outset was to equip Flip-Flops to be a global cruiser with solid reliable systems that wouldn’t let us down. If you look at the electrical system, for example, we have an all Victron System with some components that are often only found on much, much bigger boats. For example, Flip-Flops has a 3.6KW isolation transformer that allows truly global power connectivity, the boat can connect to just about any shore power system in the world, be it 110v or 220v, no problem! Next, she has a 3KW inverter Charger and 1100 watts of solar with each panel connected to its own dedicated MPPT solar charge controller to ensure maximum performance and redundancy. All of this is connected to a Victron Energy Lithium Battery bank with BMS (actually the boat has 2 BMS on board which is unheard of). In total there are 600AH/hr of Lithium. Plus a 115amp and 200A High Output Alternator. In terms of backup systems, she has 2 autopilot computers, 2 chartplotters, and 2 AIS systems.
Other features include, a 111lt/hr (30Gal/hr) dual membrane watermaker that is bulletproof, without any relays or electronics to make it work, an Induction cooktop, almost new rigging and Goose Neck (2018), a brand new life raft (3 months old), and much more.
We have simply loved our life on our 380. In my opinion, they are the best small catamaran ever built and there is nothing on the market today that comes close to the 380. But don’t take my word for it, join the Lagoon 380 group on Facebook and find out for yourself.
Our adventures on Flip-Flops have been incredible. Since we bought her in the Caribbean, we have lived on her constantly for 5 years. During that time we have done 25,000 miles of cruising. A journey that has taken us up and down the eastern Caribbean twice, Colombia, Panama, through the Panama Canal, up to Costa Rica, six more months in Panama. Our Pacific crossing went directly from Panama City to Nuku Hiva in the Marquesas, a distance of 4,000nm. 27 blissful days on the magnificent wide-open Pacific ocean.
Next, we spent almost two years in French Polynesia, exploring three of the Archipelagoes in intimate detail. Our most recent passage has brought us from Tahiti in French Polynesia to Fiji, where we have fallen in love with the islands and people.
We had no intention of stopping cruising, we got to Fiji fell in love, and decided to stay, It was a tough decision but after 5 years, with our son going to University, and my husband's balance issue, which isn’t improving, it is time for a change. Flip-Flops is cruising today and is quite ready to carry on our circumnavigation, as is.
If we were to keep the boat, we would sand and refinish the cabinets in the Salon, which need some TLC. We will replace the salon floor and oven before possession, as the floors are a bit tired. The oven is one of the few things we have not replaced on the boat, and is overdue for replacement.
For the people who are lucky enough to buy Flip-Flops, we will make up a user's manual, as well as walk them through every system on the boat. We are happy to be on speed dial to help get you going should you need any refreshers or need to troubleshoot anything.
We feel very attached to Flip-Flops she’s a big part of our story, looking back at it she’s our kid's childhood home. We hope whoever comes next, loves her and takes as much care of her as we’ve tried to do. But most importantly, has as much fun on her as we have had. Maybe you’ll be lucky and find the $1000 Eastern Caribbean Dollar bundle we managed to lose somewhere on the boat 5 years ago!!!"
